Towards A Climate-Resilient Energy Infrastructure in Central America

Focusing on Honduras, this study (available in Spanish) has investigated how the electricity sector in Central America could become more resilient to climate extremes. The report, published by the Central American Integration System (SICA) in cooperation with the Energy Ministry of Honduras (SEN) and supported through a Leveraged Partnership with GET.transform, assesses the climate vulnerability of the Honduran power system and makes recommendations to increase its robustness.

Scenarios for the Energy Transition

Energy scenarios developed in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are not limited to technical and economic parametres but increasingly include social and environmental factors that reflect the complexities of a clean energy transition. This is one of the findings recognised in this report which summarises the webinar series Long-Term Energy Scenarios (LTES) for Developing National Clean Energy Transition Plans in Latin America and the Caribbean jointly organised by IRENA, UN ECLAC and GET.transform in 2021.

Nigeria Case Study: Financing Instruments for the Mini-Grid Market

This GET.transform case study illustrates Nigeria’s successful approach to establishing large-scale mini-grid programmes. One of the success factors in Nigeria is the development of strong financing instruments, on top of a series of power sector reforms and regulations in place for the development of mini-grids. Nigeria uses both performance based grants and minimum subsidy tenders, with result-based financing (RBF) instruments used under both the Nigeria Electrification Project (NEP) and the Rural Electrification Fund (REF), to guarantee consistency in reimbursement of developers’ costs.

Ethiopia Case Study: Integrating Off-grid Technologies into Electrification Planning

This GET.transform case study describes the rural electrification framework in Ethiopia. Recognising that the success of off-grid electrification rests upon solid planning, the Government of Ethiopia developed an updated version of its National Electrification Program (NEP 2.0) in 2019. Ethiopia uses a digitalised master planning approach with numerous tools and cross-checks to designate the most suitable access technology per community throughout the country. The strength of the master plan lies in the combination of a geospatial mapping with cross-referenced and digitised baseline data.
